Editor's Review

MAC Strada Blush ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is described as a "mid-tone nude." It's a pink-beige on me but looks less pink once applied on the face. MAC Brit Wit is a bit pinker but similar, just in a cream form.  It's a good shade for contouring if you're light to medium in skin tone, and it will also work as a cheek color on light to light-medium skin tones. On medium skin tones, you might find you're really piling it on to get enough of an effect on the cheeks. It has a matte finish, which is yet another reason why it works well for contouring without looking muddy. It wore for about eight hours. The texture is soft enough to be blendable and buildable, but it doesn't kick up powder or look dry on the skin.

I have and have had only the regular blush version of Strada. I think it is more nude, with a touch of pink. Wonderful for contour for pale and light skinned ladies - just use light hand. The LE version of Strada seems to be a different formula as well as slightly different color.
